OK so obviously there is no way (especially at such an early juncture, and with such a new concept) to predict the growth rate of the maidsafe network, but for a bit of fun I looked at a few numbers associated to growth curves of other ‘ventures’ in the tech sphere:
bitcoin users 1.2 million users* in 5 years
facebook 1.23 billion users** in 10 years
whatsapp 450 million*** users in 4 years
My highly uneducated and ultimately meaningless guess is that there will be 1 million accounts by this Christmas, and 1 billion within 3 years of launch (I am an optimist:)
So, what does everyone reckon the growth will curve will look like for maidsafe, and is anyone else prepared share their guesstimate?
